Best Dressed: 2018 NBA Awards’ #SwagWorthy Athlete’s graced the red carpet

All eyes were on the The NBA Awards as hardware was presented to the athletes with the best performance in their designated fields. More importantly, the fashion was out in full force as well. To be the best, you have to look the best.

Let’s just take a moment to recognize that the footwear out that night was fire! Everything from bedazzled Christian Louboutin hightop sneakers, to Tom Ford suede york chain loafers, and even a clean and classic white low cut sneaker from brands like Common Projects and Balmain graced the red carpet.
